Town Centre Crewe is perhaps best known as a major train station on the west coast main line with an industrial past. The town is very much centred on the large train station but is quite spread out. Most major chains are here but there are a few independent shops though the centre of town and on Nantwich Road has suffered in recent years though the nearby “Mornflake Stadium” is home to local football club Crewe Alexandra.

The feel of Crewe is very much that the town is bedroom community used for commuters to nearby Manchester, Liverpool and Birmingham.

Crewe Heritage Centre

Crewe Heritage Centre is an impressive train museum unsurprisingly a short distance from the train station (and behind the Asda). It is typically open only during the summer and on weekends but is well worth a visit.

Crewe Lyceum Theatre

Crewe Lyceum

Crewe Lyceum Theatre is the local theatre with shows typically running one or two nights and, of course, a traditional Christmas panto every year.

Crewe Market Hall

Crewe Market Hall

Crewe Market Hall is an indoors venue that hosts several street food vendors and occasional events such as quizzes. When we visited there were a few closed stalls but there is a good selection of food: Pizza, Mexican, Burgers, Noodles, and Hot Dogs though they do also have a few small boutique stores and even a small Asian supermarket.
